magnitude imperilled by the election to the presidency of an anti-slavery man by abraham lincoln, he meant, the people of the southern states were driven to the adoption of some course of action to avert the danger with which they were openly menaced. and that course of action, of course, was leaving the federal union. davis was not overstating the stakes for him if his fellow -- for him and his fellow slave owners, the more than 12 million souls who resided in the southern states in 1860. nearly one out of three of those people was enslaved, was owned outright by other people. and on the markets of the day, those nearly four million human beings were worth something like $3 billion. that was an immense sum at the time. it was a sum greater than the value of all the farmland in all the states of the south. it was a sum fully three times as great as the cost of constructing all the railroads that then ran throughout all the united states. to give you some idea of just what those human bodies were worth. but even more important to southern wealth than the sale price of these human bodies was

called abraham lincoln's white house. through the narrative of defense i have a comparative look at both of the inner and outer lives of this extraordinary group of figures, combing through their family papers, their letters, their official records, and what a great luxury it is the root so often to their families for the children they wrote these passages at night in their diary how they have time to do so after worrying about the civil war during the day still remains a mystery to me but life is less distracted in those days. and i am hoping this competitive perspective will also have some insights into a number of issues in the field of the scholarship including the impact of loss of a parent at an early age and experience that lincoln shared with chase base and stanton. he lost his mother and chase was on the eight when he lost his father, stanton was 13, and while each of their lives was permanently contoured by the early death of their parent, the impact of oh-la-la depended on each man's tim grumet and the unique circumstances and their families. the comparative perspective also c
